with the same type of bali, bat 
and bas«s, and they use the 
same terms — pitcher, territory, 
left field, run ^ but the game 
lakes place on a local playing 
field rather than a big stadium. 

The same's true ofE pyx's 
version of the game which 
follows the rules closely, allows 
the players strategic flexibility 
and scores through the runs on 
a multiple screen, 3D, 
representation of the pitch 
First, though, you dectdo

again St afriendorchanca

opponerii Decision made. 



you've got to choose your team 
from 16 neighbourhood kids 
who ail want to be in on the 
play 

Each kid has his, or her. own 
chftra^eristtcs^fiome maice 
good runners white others fiald 
well or are hot on the pitching 
diannond. Butch, for jnstance. 
will take cha-nces it he can see 
even the slimest likelihood thai 
he can make it from one base to 
another, while Ralph is so fleet 
of fCM3t and mentally agile xhax 
he car dodge just about 
anything. 

A computer controlled team 
makes play look easy. Its 
players hit the baif accurately 
almost every time and its 
fielders Are slick and almost 
always on the mark, 

Batting's the most difficuft 
The pitche# can throw at any 
angle or speed and you've got 
to match it with bat positioning 
— not an easy task m this 
simuiation because the only 
Sureway tohittheball is to 



fuitge with ihe bai al the nyht 
time. If you miss the ball three 
times, and it falls into the hands 
of 1 he catch er crouching behtnd 
you, you're Struck out without it 
chance to run. 

When you do manege to hit 
the bail the computer displays 
your run, base to base, from g 
bird's eye view. It also marks 
the posilion of the ball on that 
plan SQ you can gauge whether 
to try for the next base, 

Pitching isn't a cmch either. 
tiut it's easter than batting and 
you're likely to make more 
headway by knocking the 



opposing te^m out than on your 
own runs. 

Sfreer Sports Basebitil has a 
few strikes against it. The 
betting and pitching controls 
er^toc limited and the 
computer comes across u p aces 
100 many ttmes for natural skiJL 
If you can put up with the 
machine's team 8^0. and select 
a good squad from the rabble 
you're shown, you might just 
enjoy this game.

^ REVIEWER MARSHAL 

Qef^nd^r of th0 Crawfi look* 
great <jfi the Amiga, nobodv wtil 
Argue with thai. But there lA/as a 
tot of scepticism: SLfrroundin9 
Cinemawdra putting out a 64 
version of the game. 

So how did Iheydo? The 
answer n GREATI Not only are 
the graphics and inusic faithful 
to the original version, bat 
aame-ptey has been 
sbgnifjcantly improved. But first 
a b i I a bo ut t he garna itself. 

It's 1491. TheKingof Ennland 
has biBen assassinated arLcfaii 
the rfl^l^estate is now up for 
grab^, It falls on you to become 
one of four Saxon Knights, with 
th^coniputor taktrtg on ih& 
roles of all the other characters, 

Each knight has3itributQ$ 
that dictate his life, as well as a 
castle and small army to start, 

Through boldness and 
strategy, you must increase 
your holdings, defeat the other 
Knights, and take on the 
Norman conquerors as well. 

This takes a lot of cash, but 
th«re are t number of ways to 
build a fart line. The easiest is to 
raid a castle, wipe everybody 
out ^nd run back home, Qf 
course, others mi^ht talte a dim 
view on this, so be sure to take 
plenty of troops and knights, 
and leave a igood force to 
defend your home castle when 
you go 'stepping out". 

Vou cari also participate in 
jousts, wtiich add to your 



prestige aft welK Use the money 
to buifd more castles, 
consolidate your territory, and 
takeover. 

A "map' feature helps you 
checkout what all the other 
boys are doing, and rescuing a 
fair damsel wiTl make you a 
better, stronaer leader — 
everybody likes a family man. 

Your ally, Habln Hood, wilt 
also come to your aid three 
times, but success or failure will 
still be on your sboulders, 

Defender runt quick and 
clean on the C64, Aith an 
excellent sound track — thanks 
to sound compression 
techniques. 

Packed wi(h data on both 
sides, the program has been 
improved ir> a number of 
important ways First off ^ it is 
possible to move through 
neutral territories — providing 
thai the landowner has no 
reason to hate you, 

Sword-play is now indicated 
with s strength bar al the 
bottom of the screen, making it 
a lot easier lo decide whether to 
fight or flee. 

The interior castle aword- 
fighting scene is intact, 
complete with the shadows of 
the combatants flickering from 
the torches. 

Battling your opponents' 
armies is now done with sword- 
play, rather than fust watching a 
screen indicate whether youVe 
won or lost. 

Othar elements remain the 
same, such as assaulting a 
castle with a catapult, and 
manoeuvring your armies 




Growii 



aroundtheiandscapD.My 
favourite, going h^ad to head at 
the tournament, hasrt't been 
trashed either. In fact, the 
an i mat ion here actu oily seem s 
quite a bit smoother than that of 
itspredecessor. 

Plus, your Opponent isn"! a 
perfect shot anymore, so two or 
three passes are now the norm. 

Of course, the C64 can't 



duplicate the digitised sounds, 
or highiy visual graphics of the 
Amiga, but you get a whole lot

A school report tor the Atari XL/XE series would 
probably read 'late starters'. Somehow they failed 
to attract the public when they were first flocking 
to buy C64sandSpectrums. But the story has a 
happy ending. Discount prices led to a soltd user 
vase which Atari, much to their credit, continued 
to support. So did the software manufacturers, 
some of whom were in from the start, others 
arriving rather later wher> they saw an untapped 
market The result is that the machines' 
ca pa bi litres are now b«ing exploited by some 
excellent fuM price games, balar^ced by a briHiant 
budget selection. So forget the ST for a minute ^ 
here's a baker's dozen to prove that the Atari 3-bit 
bites back!

mouth, has discovered ihe meaning of life. Has 
he found religion or uncovered the joys of 
contempiation? No, he's discovered Backlash 
and Damocles, Novagen's follow-ups to 
Encounter and Mercenary. TT stngs Ihe firalses of 
Paul Woakes, the tirain behind tiolh games. 



Ohh^ Paul W(»Kes wntt are 
you doing 10 me>t> 
Few people givfl meaning 
ro lite Mtien it comes to playing 
Qames but Mr Woakes is one of 
the lew people i would cili a 
geftius m iiis lield 

His field IS 3 graphics, and 
hiS prevkous games Enoiunm 
and Mercenary in m a universe 
o1 l(ie<r own 

Tnai*as THEN this IS NOW 
and his latest two gatnts 
currently urttter divelopment an 
Encountfr Mk 2 (tilled Sscklasd} 
and Damo^es, lh« follow up to 

Honesily, J knaw I rave a fair 
bit but tftese two games will take 
your breath away 

Bicklash is a ly)l blown Solid 
3-D tank type game You are 
placed in various landscapes and 
hive 10 Uke m various iiasties- 
This IS done by dipping around 
taking out real mean looking alien 
gunoe. 

Uth level o1 ttie gaiw pla^is 
you in a sMtor and you Kave to 
tvsttie you way 1o a i\m in trie 
^Clor walls thai surround you IF 
you reach and manage 1o get 
trough ttis hole, you warp to the 
nexttevel 

The view you are presented 



with is as though you were sitting 
in a tank Ifwking out from a 
window 

The landscape that I saw was a 
{^sen with a misty almost surreal 
horizon where you could move in 
all directions, the illusion of 
movement was very fast , Ihe 
ground whicff has so)ic9 tumps 
strewn over it lusi slides away 
under you. and obiecis cchme at 
you witri a real smooth and soiid 
leel , It makes you |usi want to 
reach out and toue^ them 

The aliens already m the game 
include a menaang eyeball thai 
comes at you Irom a distance antl 
opens slowly to spy on you then ^ 
zoon^ away. 

This IS beautifully animated and 
typical of Itie dassy presefiiatioo 
or the game 

Vou can also fire missiles to 
destroy alien targets. Ihese 
missiles fly out from under you 
ami when they hit a tarsjet it 
explodes and showers debhs 
beaiitifully around you 

Again the animation and braKe 
up IS incredibly realistic, its as 
thougti you are watching a war 
film with shells blowing up 
around you 

Your bullets tiave gravity on 
them as do various obiects in irir 





game, tfie use of gravity ts 
original and applied with a strong 
sense of gamepiay. your bullets 
can be di reeled with gravity to 
encircle and disperse over a wide 
area to attach a variety of aliens 

There are also little alien bases 
that have strong centres of gravity 
and these can divert ycur bullets 
and m sotrie cases cause them to 
cycte around m decreasing 
circles You are imiiKKJ to 1 6 
bullets on screen at any one time. 
■f you can call that a limitation! 

mere is aiso a fountain type 
ab]ect ttiat throws out glitzy litlt 
diamonds around you. this rias 
yet to be implemented m the 
game as an aid or hazard 

Which ever it turns out to be it 
will stun you tt IS gorgeous to 
look at. 

Die graphics are colourful and 
a deligfit to the eye , the use of 3D 
IS done to peffection and sound

more successful than shooting 
directly at a ghost. 

Occastonatly, you will enter 
a room which has a rechsrger, 
but you don i particularly ne«ct 
it as yo4j wril have plenty of 
shots remaining. 
In this case it is twtter to us« 
■^ up your existing energy by 
deahng the scfo«n or ghosts 



before you pick up your 
existing energy by dearirrg the 
screen of ghosts before you 
picl< up the recharger In this 
way you will have maximum 
energy for ihe nsJtl screen. It 
4S impossible to reenter a 
screen you have jusi teh. so 
make sure you collect all the 
objects before you leave. 



Here are some general lips for 
Phantfmi on the Atari 000 
Sfmon5:Dfces of Birmhrtgham- 
Remember where the 
gliosts on each screen. Two 
ghosts will appear in each 
area and they tend to 
matenallse at the ends ol 
corridors. 

All ghosts follow general 
rules of movement. They wili 
Change direction only when 
they bump into object such as 
keys, wails, dcxjrs and other 
ghosi 



This means that you can 
usually wait safely in the 
middle of a room while the 
ghosts circle you. following tt>e 

waiJs, 

An important factor to 
remember is that your reactor 
only has limited energy and 
due to the fact that rechargers 
are very rare, it is important 
not to waste shots. The best 
lactjic (or shooting ghosts is to 
tire a beam of energy directly 
into Iheir path so that they 
waiK straight inio it. This if far

The game hifntory h well 
plannvd out and you gel the 
thancc lo plav one of the 10 
raceii available. Thi> can He 
anthjng from a Gobtin in a 
Dark Elf 

There's a chtticc of eight 
character cUisses. from mage

tion of each dass. which in- 
forms yot) of SOME of vour 
advantages, You Mrill be in- 
formed of the others when you 
hiive Tina My itclecled your 
claw. 



The nilebook a.s!n tells you 
about the maf|;ic system ■— 
which K, easy to learn, (he 
guilds, which iirt fin e>!<entijil 
part of thih game and your 
skills, which you can choose. 

] Itxiked al the m depth 
de5»cription on how to com- 
plete youf turn, the lengthy > 
easy to read insl ructions on 
how to create your chancier 
and the ver)' orig,inal "charac- 
ter charts" . This is a novel idea 
that is particulariy ii»ctuL Say 
you are in a town and you 
Wftnted to know how many 
cliaractc» in tlie same town 
worshipped the sums dicty as 
you All you have to do is send 
a request to the G.M. and he 
^ill send a printout. 

The G,Ms input all kind of 
starts into the coniputcr and it 
is there for you to take advan- 
tage of. With the aid for this 
computerised system, you ^ill 
be able (o get all s^irt of useful 
information. 

To go to the extreme, if you 
really wanted to fitui out how 
many black haired, blue eye<l 
Goblins were in town, you 
could find out! 

But there is a cald). if yoti 
wish to use this system, you 
must be prepared to have all 



YOUK character's details, put 
on record for the other players 
to ttt^pcct. 

There were one or twt> 
things thai I though weren't 
quite right about the rukb*>ok. 
For a start there is no artwH;irk 
in^dc it to make it more 
appealing- Secondly there in 
the movement system which 
leaves a lot to he desired. 

Another nice touch is the 
"ch.'trjcter folder". This is 
]^ours to keep and ^$^\t\ i> 
printed on high quality yellow 
card and has a neat bii of 
artwork on the fionl. You 
enter all the details of your 
charcler, including his/he r/i(s 
description, magic learned, 
history und cquipmeni, 

A start-up package costs 
£6.UU and futuie turns are 
£2.00 each. The character 
charts coKt around 35 per print 
out. 

This game is ideal for those

ST.J^R TROOPER 

Talking of ne* games. 
Milrr Gamesi. one of the lead- 
ing P.B.M. companies have 
iw<if l;ttin{;l'icd thu-it new game, 
SlJinthip C'ctmmunder 

This is a totally computer 
moderated game and it is 
aimed at sci-fi fans. You are a 
captain of a starship flying 
from planet to planet in search 
of resources which will enrich 
your home Wisrld jnd increase 
its power. 

Your home planet is in- 
volved in an age-old struggle 
for domination over a large 
number of other planets. Each 
planet is striving for an advan- 
tage in cither economic or 
military areas which will boiry\ 
btKh M.itii^ ,inJ power. 

YttLi .lit: called lo the 
Admiralty, and you are hand- 
ed a hiLi'jiMi: cunningly dis- 
^irii^l ;iv ,1 iLikhook — from an 
.ulniir,il ',iho seems familiar. 
Yes. folks it's universal 
domination limc again! 



Youi .lie imjnc:di.itL-ly 
promoted to Commander and 
assume control of an X-7l 
scout ship, 

Y'ou know that the universe 
is divided into six time-space 
areas which are called "shift-**" 
named A to F- Although no 
fighting lakes pluce in Shift A 
hy unanimous plartctwide 
agreement, fighting takes 
place in shifts B. C, E, and F, 
with large fleets *)f Dread- 
noughts or Destroyers locked 
in combat. 

ft is your task to travel 
around in your scout ship, 
recruiting men und winnmL- 
resources from ^'anous 
planets, while: at the same time 
building yourself a powerful 
ship before returning lo your 
homework! wilh the minerals 
and energy resources they so 
had^y need. 

The game seems one for 
fairly expcnenccd P-B.M.ers 
who enjoy pitting their wits 
against the computer and are 
good at analysing printouts. 
Go*)d diplomaty and tactics 
would also be an advantage in 
playing this game. 

Set up costs Cl.Oft and future 
rounds are a very reasonable 
ill.tXl per lime. However any 
reader who writes to me a1 
C-i-VG enckvsing the logo 
abtive will be credited with 
two FREE turns worth £2,(H). 
If you are interested drop me a

so tough that when one of 
them sees a scorpion in the

his hand, wander around for 
a white, then crushed it! 

This is all too much for

furrowing his bmw that

intellect, so he concentrates 
on his Mexican girlfriend 
and her ex -boyfriend and his 
ex -best pal. Powers Booth, a

Ya-hoo! 

I must confess an cjctretne 
prejudice of my own against 
movies like thifi. It hag all 
the political sophistication of 
a Reaganite A -Team but 
rather less character. 

The aame sort of dusty, 
desert border country bred a 
more peaceful hero back in 
1958, when a lY-year-old 
called Richard Valenzuela 
picked up a |i;^itar and 
became a rock and roll £tar. 

As Eichie Valens he 
crashed the charts three 
time^ in eight months, firal 
with the rocker Come On 
heVa Go. then the dreamy 
Donaa, and finally hi si 
version of the traditional 
tune which ^ves the movie 
it£ title. La Bamba ( 15). 



The UntauChobtftS itornng Swn Connory and Afldy Gortio. 




Like all good rock 'n' roll 
legends, Valens came from & 
poor and troubled 
background. There was his 
hiking hoodlum brother for 
example, who grew 
increajiingly jealuuMas the 
money poured in. And like 
all good legends, Valens died 
young, in the plane craeh 
that killed Buddy Kolly and 
TheBigBopper,

creep, 1 aided with thv biker 
when It came to the punch 
up. Rock puHsts won't be too 
pleased with the way that ail 
the songs have been re- 
recorded either. 

Eight months, three bits 
and a plutne era^h in 
djstinguiahed company are 
Just not enough tojuiitify this 
sort of star treatment. What 
about the corrupt manag«i«, 
the poyala, the darker side of

enough for my liking; —

Let's; not give up on the

The Big Town there's much 
more trouble an teenage dice 
player Matt Dillon fmds out 
when he joins a gambling 
syndicate run by Ferguson 
Edwards and her blind 
huaband- 

He's a small town kid, out 
to make good in the big city 
by proving that he can i»hoot 
craps like no other Now. 
despite my wasted youth. I 
never learnt the arcane rules 
of the dice but no worr>', 1

understand enough to bring 
them out in a sweat as J, C-

If you're lucky you may 
hide out in a cinema where 
Hope and Glory is 
showing. After the exotic 
dangers ofThe Emerald 
Forests John Boor man has 
turned to perils of a much 
more personal nature — his 
memories* of growing up in 
London during the BtiU« 

The movie centres on the 
Rohan family — dad, who 
enlists imme>d lately to be 
given a desk job: mum, 




Big Easy ^■. ,;■.,,. ...jf, 

bringing up a family single* 
handed; older sister Dawn 
who thinkii; that the war's a 
great way to further 
international relations — 
with a Canadian soldier; 
younger sister Sue; and Bill, 
the nine-year-old hero, 

For Boorman' Bill, growing 
up in wartime is very much 
like growing up at any time, 
only more of an iidventure. 
Nrgwadays kidii play in 
Hhtkpping precincta: 40 years 
ago they played on

barrage balloon breaks free; 
eventualy the family h 
rorc^ to evacuate to the 
countryside where the tale 
take.iton a more rural tone, 
but it's ao more peaceful, 
thanks to an iiritahle old 
grandfather. 

Hope and Glory is a 
gentle movie hut it's never 
nostalgic. Boorman views 
history with a sharp eye. 
However, he does find much 
that's hysterically funny in 
episodes that made up his 
war and they're sure to hit 
home with anybody who's 
ever been young, A great 
British film which sees great 
events in a pergonal lif^ht

though it tries hard to 
pretend it's Now York. It 
fails! In fact, apart from 
some very grisly effects, its 
difficult to imagine much 
being spent on this movie at 
ail. 

The plot's as silly as you 
could hope for — a magic box 
which summons upaensual 
demons who take your very 
i^ml beyond the limits of 
tionsation. It even vaguely 
resembles two recent 
horrors, Kvil Dead II and 
From Beyond. 

We've all seen it before 
and L for one , don't 
paKicularly want to be 
reminded of thot<<p bad-old-

"The 16 bit machines wlU 
hove comptetely taken tr/er

have the Lions' share of things 
during the rest of 87 and most

"Because thiere are so few 
different types ol game; the 
user-interface becomes veiy 
important We are constantly 
looking for new and original 
ways of presenting our games to 
the putdic either with new 
methods of play or vvith 
interesting packaging 

WHh the products we have 
under devefoprrkent now. and 
the ideas we have for the future, 
I think Infogrames will be 
around for a long time to 
come." 

If the evkience of Infogrames

major force in the not too 
distant future.

However Anita's plans wera 
to produce arcade ^mes for 
the new machine, because thev

Hainbrrd, was for the Atart ST. 

At tfw time, the ST was stlC a 
nouehy machine that nobody 
had got to grips with, 
Consequently, everyone who 
had an ST wanted to see wh^i 
their machine coukj do. 

The graphics featured in The 
pKun showed therr! Many 
became adventure com^erls as a 
result. 

Apart from the Impressive 
graphk3, Tihe Pawn is also a 
dassy advvnture itKOfporotir^ 
poss^Uy the world's most 
pou/erful and fle»Ne parser. 

This, combined with the 
memorable packaging, had 
punters rushing to get their 
hands on one of those shiny 
blueboicess

There's no doubt that the 
ST version reatly established 
TTie Paum. Before that it was 
just another adventure. And the 
reason the ST version <^used 
such a stir u<eis primarily because 
of the graphics and the paner. 
The adventure itself hadn't 
reaOy changed fwim the QL 
version," says Anata, 

T>ie Pawn has now delighted 
^nd fmstrated the (^wrteis of 
manv different makes of 
computCT from the Apple 
Macintosh to the Spectrum 
128 And Magrieth: Scrolls are 
now widely regarded as 
England's arswer to the 
mighty Infocom. 

"I make no seaet of my 
admiration for Infocom. 1 know 
nwny of theit auihors &nd 
they're a great bunch. But we 
deliberately try to differentiate 
our products bom theirs," Anita 
explains. 

The company's second 
adventure, TTie Guiid of 
Thieoeit. was raleasecl about 
four months agp. and Is already 
attracting the kind of cudc« 
bvfshed on The Raui, 

Comfpaied with it's 
predecessor, GuM is a more 
mature, more tightly designed 
^une. with better ( trickier! I 
puales. How did st d\ come 
together? 

"An ejocellent writer, Rob 
Steggles, did the original script, 
He's a hin -loving, outgoing kind 
of guy who couJd write a fantasy 
^me every day of the week 




"At the time, we were still 
finishing off The Pawn so 
nobody took much notice of 
what he was doing. The only 
brief we gave him w«is that it 
vMXjild be nice to do a get the 
treasures type of adventure, arai 
we wonted to keep character 
inl^ractlon. tn the game, to a

The ne»l section of the script 








Magnetic Scrolls are the UK's leading Atari 
and Amiga adventure authors. Here David 
Bishop deJves into the secrets oi the scrolls 
and comes up with some interesting clues 
to the next generation of adventure games. 







is etititted specials^ and deab 
with aU the puzdea in the game 
— "if you open the golden cage 
whtte the bear is sbll alive he 
eats you" — thai kind of thing. 

After sipecials comes a bgic 
dlajgram for each charader in 
the game. Kor example "vAiai 
would the mttler do if you 
offered him sorne rat poison?" 

Nifxl comes a table of doors 
and other obstructions. Also 
listed here ts what hai^wns to 
each door when you try various 
thin^ such as opening, 
tcnockJtiQ, (rytng to unlock It 
wUh various keys. 

Tbe final, and most bulky, 
section of Steg^es' Guiki xflpi 
kthe descilption of each bcdtion 
and wtial happens (here. Thte 
forms the basic framework 
arouTKl which aU tt>e other 
information te crafted. 

The script took about three 
months to usrite and it took the 
same time again to code the 
raw information into Fred, 
Magnetic Scrolls development 
lystem, 

"f^red turns data frorm 



MerboSif to a manag^abte form, 
from a compulers point of view. 
During the coding process we 
try to think of any little additions 
that might innprave a pamcular 
tfxation or puzzle. 

"For exannpie. in the first 
kicaticin. ypyre standing in a 
boat moored to a >elty by a 
rope. The Sfoipi calls for you to 
lump ftom the boat to the Jetty, 
but we added iht: ability to p^ 
ori the rope, thus draggjna the 
boat founds the Jetty so you 
don't have to lump." 

One of the most impressive 
of Fred's features is the way he 
handles oi^^ects. each of which 
is gjven a set ol properties which 
determine what happens to that 
obtect in AfVY set of 
ciicumstances possible within 
the game. 

Because each object can be 
given such a defiled profUe, 
Fred can immediately tdl vvhkh 
on^ can be picked up. broken 
or put into other containers. 
This allows for a high level of 
reality aivl fleidbdliiy when 
handling ofejecti. 

The rennidning parts cl Fred's 
huge database contain a 
"network" shou^ng how and 
where locations are linked 
together. There is also a 
complete bst of werts, synonyms 
{for estample. "drag" is a 
synonym for "pull "I, «ni 
scenery nouns (words used to 
describe objects In a kication 
which can't be prtxluctlvely 
examined). 




So alter six monthsu Scrolls 
had the bare bones of The 
Guild o/ Th^iws. But it lacked 
atmosphere and felt flat, ^klw 
came the time consuTnlng task 
of putting flesh on the bones 

''We look various bts out at 
this stage because they didn't 
really fit or there wasn't room. 
Sorrtetimes wed bO be a httk 
unhappy wUh the way a puzzle 
u^Tked ^Q vM'd see if there u«s 
a way to jaz£ it up or add 
another twist to it. 
"At the same time we have to 
test every situation to make sure 
there are no logical 
infconsistencies. This involves us 
in trying to anticipate what 
people may try, in order to 
allow them to have a 90, even if 
it brjt^gs them no do&er to 
solving the game," says Anita. 

'The testing, debogging, and 
refining process can take 
forever but you have to draw 
the line at some point, 
othierwise the game would 
never see the light of da^" 

The fir«t release of Guiki was 
the culminaSon of nearly ffue 
man years of wotk, including a 
yvear for the graphics. Each 
machinie conversion can take 
up to another ax man months, 
so producing and releasing a 
top-notch adventure is not a 
short process Consequer^, 
Sao& are very oonoemed about 
what happens to their games 
once they're finished 

""We did almo^ all the pack 
design, artwork, and Uji^ut for 
the Pawn and the GuiJdr 

With such an impeccable 
track record, will It be haitl for 
SctoHs to reach or even, surpass 
I heir own very high standards iti 
hjture releases^ 

Luckily for us. we won t have 
to wail very k>ns to fmd ouL as 
their neO. title, another fanta^ 
adventure, again through 
Ratr^btrd, ts due to be launched 
at the P^rsonis] Computer 
Worid show later this month, 

Looking ahead Scrotts are 
rushing to complete another 
adventure by the end oi the 
year Anita has also found some 




time to 9et b*:k to Imi current 
pet project entitled Upon 
Westrniimer Bridge, 

'W^mfnster will be the first 
Scrolls title written by one of us, 
consequently I think it 11 be our 
best! .no seriously It's a 
departure from games like T7»c 
pawn and Guild, for a start 
there's no ^^phks. It iwjn't be 
ready for anolher year tfrough!" 

"As to the future, well we'd 
like to get to the stage where we 
had a 'block box" parser which 
other companies could use in 
1 heir games — not adventures 
you understand, but thirvgs like 
a flight simulator you couU talk 
10! 

In general, we want to carry 
on writing adventures but 
maybe get away from always 
hauing rooms, objects, and your 
persorta moving (hiough them." 
she added. 

"It wodd be nice to tty 
something wtwre other 
■forces" in the game act 
according 10 what you do 
Imagine two bu«nessmen going 
after the sarne contrad. You 
might try somethirkg. he may 
counierad your efforts by doing 
somefh^r>g else, and soon. The 
possibilities are tmrrjense and. 
a& yet. largely unexplored." 

For those of you who haven't 
played TTie Pawn or The GuiW 
0/ Thieves yet. you should, and 
soonl 

But be warned- These

So hais Hood Runner ST con-

Each kvd Is comprised of a 
horizontally orientated map any'

elevated side view and the ulfra- 
srnooth scroii follows the move 
meni of RR across the tnap from 
right to left 

By making the foreground

A bonus is also auwded tf you

five pies RR will faint and loose

Happily no. Altfioygh Bar-

Each ^(p can on^ carry 1000 
soldiers and ail are lost when you 
suffer a defeat at sea, so it's impor 
tanl to coordinate the move 
ments of your navy In the most 
efficient manner possible 

The ftnaJ phase, combat, is 
where players see the results of 
the decisions they made in the 
previous two phases. 

In this computer controlled 
seqwrtce, ihe garne scrolls over 
Ihe4x2 screen mapoftheiM^d. 
showing the tmuh of each indi- 
vklual battle by the cokxtr in 
Which disputed territory is filled. 

No change of colour means 
the def ertding pouwr managed to 
hang on to cortiroJ of that 
countty. 

As each ptayer inputs his or her 
iinstructions for each of the game 
phases, the other pfayers must 
look away from the screen. This is 
a perfect time for the other 
players to indulge in a little dip^ 
lomatic banter or back stabbing. 
The ability for players to rrtake 
and break peace b%atles and 
agreements, and to gang up on

similar in some respects to the 
BMC ellent board ga me Drplomacy.

You must defeat your oppon

HcKuever. I am totd by orte of our 
leaders that tfte %rtng kick is not 
ifKluded In any stj^ dl karate, if 
ths 1$ so then wjhy ifidude it? 

All moves, there are 16. are

and what a treat to tfie eyes and

I^croded have ako had the 
dlstiTKtion at releasing the first 
isometric game for the ST 
Calkd AiftQll, the game is set 
in the evil wuard's caide, where 
you have to find a spelt book 
before you can change back 
from a balloon to a human 

The castle has 150 JTOone 
packed full of exquisitdy 
desigTved sione vkSk, st^lues, 
Ice-stalagmltes, and a hundred 
other graphKol delights. 





Cornwall is famous for Ifssmuggfers — but if 
any pi rotes set toot In St Auslelf ttiey'd soon 
find themselves hanging from the highest 
yordofm. Why? Because this town is the 
home of Microdeat, at the cutting edge of ST 
and Amiga gornes software. 



What a surprt^ng is thai it 
was rtvore than 18 monlht alter 
ih« laurwrh d' the ST before a 
company launched an isometrtc 
g$nw f cv the machine. Con^der 
JMA how m^iny 8-btt OfWa there

so kmg! Anyuway, AirbaH was 
deflntfdy woith the wait and has 
set a vi^idaFd oChen will Kau«

Tony Takoushi will be pulling out all the 
stops to bring you all tke latest, hottest 
fiews and reviews from the console 
scene — not only in the UK but 
worldwide. Just look at the gems in this 
issue — an exclusive review of Outrun, 
plus a red-hot news on Nintendo 
games coming soon from the US/iapon 
So stay with C+ VG If s where the NEWS 
is I 



B: 



efore delving inlo 
software a Irtlie word of 
w0min9 lo oriy of you 
iinkirtQ about b^ng 9amiH 
dire-ct from Japan or rihus US. 

Nintsndo has releoied 
ihree different vervoni of \H 
console, one for tho UK, 
onolfier lot Hhe US and one for 
Japon. Whot ihh means » thot 
you cannot run a JopHne^e 
cqH on o UK or US system ond 
vke versa. 

Tfre carts are ihe same size 
but they will bomb when yOii 
boot fhem. 

Scad's Japanese carh will 
not even fit into o UK/US 
console os they ore slightly 
lorger. However yoy Cart bvy 
o US cort ond run if on q UK 
system. 

In case yd>u ore wondering 
why ihey did this llhe onswer « 
reoHy quiet simple. Each 
terTTfory con set Hs own prkss 
and not hove to worry obout 
imports from abroad at o 
lower price, Sn«aky, huh? 

I olvo hove to come el«on 
ov«r my own pefionoi views of 
lh« f.yitems. $«ga oi you may 
already knovv I rote vefv 
highly. In ioct I used to Inink: the 
Nlritencto lystem hod no 
chance at all ogoinst it. Well, 
thingf bove chongitd. 

Firstly I ditKOv^iod 5(^W 
Marios Bfos, thij gome makes it 
v^toith buying the system, it is so 
ployeri 

Secondly I found lliof ttie 
Ninfendo is octuolly way 
gheod qI S^^a tn jopon and 
thrid porly soTtwore reflects this 
— se« tf^e US/Jo pen release 
jchedule for Nintendo — 
wirtth some reojiy bniliont coin- 
op conversioft*^ coming 

avoiloblev 

Unfortvnotely there is a 
q<^ii^<ation to fhis ei^ui>C'&'"> 
Nintendo's own caiologue 
is pretty old, and there is no 
real hint of when these hot 
third party gomes will get to 
the UK. 

Sega has 90I its act 



ioselttef ond hos o very big 
cotologue of quolity ancode 
convenions c^iranlly 
ovoiloble. 

The Atari XE is very munch 
the darit horse, there ore 
thousands of Atari 8 -bit 
owners ovt there ond the XE is 
simply an 9- bit mochine with 
very (o5*y oew cosing. 

So who is 901 ng to buy it? 
AtoA is pitching it ot Ihe under 
1 yeor-oliis ond new 
cons-ole/mtcfo ownefs selling 
ot £60 for the bosic ^>nrt 
(upgrade to micro for on 
extro £40 pounds) with games 
Shifting ot £5 pounds. 

Just one more point to moke 
before reviewing the games, 
those eoniTtolfer pods from 
Nintendo ond Sega It is 
r»al!y driving me NuTS using 
ft^ese things f 

They ore OK on a lew 
gomes but aeneroUy they or 
noff ond fkJdfy. 

NcTw the good news. New 
loyshcfc controlled hove been 
designed by both Sego or^ 
Nintendo, so KopefuUy we 
witi not hove to suffer for k> 
lonq. 

Vou will hove read in lo^ 
month's C + VG obout the 
different pocks offered by 
Sega and Nintendo (Bosrc 
OHfO Deluxe) and ot the gomes 
to be bunched with tliem. 

ftother ihon harp on about 
the some gomes (boorr-inf g) I 
wili give you a taste oi two new 
hot gomes. Outrun on 5ego 
(on eKclusive no lesst) and 
Nemesis on the 
Nintendo. 

nt be beck next issue with 
Ions more bof stuff from the 
wacky world of gomes 
consoles. 

But if there's onything you'd 
like to see on these poqes write 
fo me ot Mean Mochines,

REVIEWS 



% Outrun is the current hot cor rocmg 
iim from iHe arcades ot ttie moment, it 
ccunes on a 256K cartridge for the 
Sego and vnll retail at £24.95. The 
version I reviewed wtis pre-production 
oikJ Kqs a few rough lechnicol pre- 
production and hod a few rough 
technical edges, but there was enough 
Iftere to convince me of its quality. 




eOutnmpHeNjpl 




The oiverall oim of the gome is to 
complefe oil six sediom of the course, 
with each section hovirrg its Ow^rv hme. 

There ii a zippy little attroct mode 
wfhich damoi vorious levels from the 
gome, o res-vp of the Outrun logo

THE ENCHANT 



Cuff adventure author Fergus McNeirr fs 
well known for his Abstract Concepts, and 
you'll find them In force In his new 
adventure The Enchantress. Ketth 
Campbell brings you an exclusive 
preview.

"serious" adventures unlike

"What? Vou mutt tiove

'Hs sneaked in o meuage

adventurer Colin luckett. 
"I took It out ogolnl" 
irvsists Fergus. 

£nchantmu Is ttw diary of a 
Vour>g gin in post swords and 
sorcery times. "Probabty 
about ttw era of Kerovnla" 
suggests Fergus. 

The object Is to kill the 
Enctvdntresi To do Hill, you 
must cotch her at wonhip — 
an activity she undertakes 
only at a certoln tjme. You 
iKive to speak to other 
characters to discover ttie 
appointed time and place. 

Clever use of mag^c Is 
mode in one of the puEdes. 
wherets'y Itie ployer hos o 
cttolce ot acquiring one of 



three spelii — Freeie. Flow 
and Find 

fach will solve the 
problem, but In a different 
way, and In so doing wtii 
make E]nott>er probtem more

Players will get as much 
hetp in conying out octioni 
as Is possible. The 
progfamme wlU unlock and 
open doors tor you 
automaHcoify If you fstue o 
command to pou through — 
pfovkting you have the 
correct key. of course No 
more of this UNLOCK OAK 
DOOR WfTH WOODEN KEY, 
OPEN OAK DOOR, frustrattofi. 

One of ttte features of 
Fergus' rww adventure 
system is a variable time

Revenge is sweet, 

so they soy. After 

months and months of 

being plogued and 

tormented by the Fiend of Faringdon, Keith 

Campbell attempts to get his own back by 

sending him Inspector FlukBtfto review. 

Campbell's chuckles could be heard all 

day. "That'll teach him, he laughed. The 

Fiend was not amused. Campbell may live 

to regret his actions.

with eoQdr anticipation that 
h& unwrapped th& latent 
peace offering from KC.

Byran Talbot's The Adventures of Luther Arkwright 
was hailed as the first and only adult British graphic 
novel when it was launched five years ago. Tne 
second volume of Arkwright's adventures will be 
publif^hed this autumn. C+ VG's comic expert Philip 
Morton investigates. 






THE FIVE-YEAR 
CLIFFHANGER 

It's 1987 (in this space-time 
continum, at least). Is the 
worJd finaliy ready for Luther 
Arkwrlght? 

Arkwrif^htisan 
interdimenf^ional agent, cold 
and unemotional by nature, 
who gels caught up in a 
fiendishly complex battle 

against the 
forces of chaos 
which rages 
across 




parallel earths. There are 
worlds, for instance, where 
Cromwell's roundheads are 
still in power . . . worlds where 
thu Crystal Palace didn't burn 
down in 1936 . . . you get the 
picture* 

If Bi^an Talbot^B name or 
artwork look Tamiliar, it's 
possibly because of the 
exquisite detailed work he*s 
done on 2000AD's Nemesis the 
Warlock (now available in 
book form from Titan Books) 
and on the computer game of 
the same name. 

Talbot created Arkwnght 
for a Iate-1970s issue of 
B rainstorm Comics. 

Following a favourable 
reaction to this, Arkwright 
reappeared in a much longer, 
more complex, story serialised 
first in Near Myths, then in 
Pssstf This serial was gathered 
together in 1982 as Book 
One of The Adventures of 
Luther Ark wrigh t. 
The book was hailed as the 
first and only truly adult 
British graphic novel. 

As a confirmed Arkwright 
enthusiast (which you'd 
probably guessed by now), I 
can't wait to read Book 
Two. Talbot's artwork, from 
the pages Fve seen, is aa 
finely -detailed as ever, 
and he promises a 
gripping story in which 
the cold, calculating 
super-agent undergoes 
, a dramatic 
transformation. In fact, 
we will see Luther Arkwright 
die a symbolic death, 



IJ^JL. 




whereupon he is reborn as a 
messianic, almost Christ-like 
figure. In the out,side world the 
Battle of London rages, and all 
the while a doomsday device is 
ticking away , , . 

So, where can you find 
Luther Arkwright? Three 
places'. 

In Book One of The Adventures 
ofLu ther A rkwright, 
published in ldS2 by Never 
Editions — who still have a 
few copies left at knock-down 
price of £2.95, 
Arkwright will also be 
appearing in a ntne-issue 
comic book, published every 
two months starting in August 
1987 by Valkyrie Press at 60p 
per issue, and reprinting the 
story from Book One. The 
attraction here is that Bryan 
Talbot has prepared a aeries of 
attractive new covers and 
frontispieces guaranteed to 
enhance your lifestyle. *

Fancy your own space 
station with all modern 
convieniences. Well, 
here's your chance to 
build your own cosmic 
home — on computer 
anyway. Space M + A-fX, 
from Final Frontier Softwo re, 
is a space station 
construction simulator 
for the IBM PC family 
and based on the NASA 
space station program. 
Space M ■ A ■ X is 
envisioned as the first 
commercial space 
station. Designer, T.L. 
Keller, used his 
experience as a 
computer systems 
analyst at NASA's Jet 
Propulsion laboratory 
to develop this highly 
complex and reolistic 
simulation. 

The object of Space 
M^ AiX is to launch, 
construct and operate a 
commercial spoce 
station given limited 
budget and time 
constraints. 

The project manager 

— you! — is 
confronted with a 
number of real-life 
situations involving 
personnel and 
resources. A variety of 
real -life accidents such 
as fires, and explosions 

— illness and strikes 
also occur. 

Space M+A+X is 
avoilable from good 
software retailers at a 
recommended retail 
price of £39.95 plus*

POWERXTREME! 

Ultimate power could 

be yours if you follow C + VG*S exclufiive 

Centunona players guide — brought to you 

by the prograniniers themselves! Tony 




Crowther and Kos.s C^odU-y Uiok a break 
from coding to bring you this X-tra special 
map. Want to know how to defeat Doc 
Terror? Then tune in to Crowther and 
Godley^s control tentrel 

The Centurions are a 21st century team 
of elite mercenaries — fighting evil where 
ever they find it. They wear special power 
suits callcKi Kxof fames and spiecial 
weapons. Kitted out in all this gear the 
members of the team each gain the power 
of l,0(M)menI 

Crowther and God!ey*s game puts the 
Centurions up against the incredibly evil 
Doc Terror. The deadly Doc is after a lethal 
substance called Tyron-Dichromate — a 
chemical so awesomely deadly that it could 
destroy all life on Earth. 

The men machines that are The 
Centurions have to search the Weapons 



l>evelopment Centre and find hidden keys 
to unlock high security sections in an 
attempt to stop the Doe turning his evil 
dreams into reality. If you want to stop him 
before It^s too late then youVe going to 
need these maps and Tony^s Tips! 

Here we show the first three levels — the 
rest will appear in the next X-tremely 
X -citing issue of Computer nnd Video 
G»Tnes! 

TONy*S TEN TOP TIPS! 

1. Try to get to large open spaces — it*8 
much easier to kill aliens here. 

2. Try to find keys WITHOUT using 
Change Zones. Use these zones as little as 
possible. 

3. Collect all the cannisters for mega- 
points 

4. If you're playing with a friend and his 




energy m running low yuu i»houlcl nnd 

Quantas for him and help keep him in the 

game. 

5, When you are weak you can stand safely 

on one of the ^nes which protect you from 

alien attackers. 

fi. Shoot the walls! Well, shoot them to kill 

aliens lurking behind you. The fouUets will 

bounce back and wipe them out 

7. Try to open as many doors as you can 

with the same key. 

R DonHbegreedy with Quantas If you're 

playing in two player mode. 

9, Be careful with your weaponry -^ some 
firepower in more useful thaii others. And 
yes, you can shool each other or yourself if 
you're not careful, 

10. Study the C + VG mapsi Watch this 
space for a Crowther cheat mode coming 
your way soon!

9 Recent concern over the 
Al[igjy roledse. bvingnone, i 
P/eiume — bA*^ brought racism 
in compulcr gamirs out Into lh« 
open. Racism inccmiputer 
Mittware is quite often horrific 
but wxism in t omputer g.)me^ 
«em$ 10 have been neglected 
recently, 

Many games are stuffed full 
of wxrst stereotype*; 
reinforcing prejudice and 
incre^i^ing divi<;ion in MKiety. 
Strip poker gamw are the moM 
obvious example of ^Kism by 
degrading women, porEf^ying 
them as seK-objects. Sexist 
attitudes are already reinforced 
dai^lv by ail areas of the media, 
f^pcciaify scandal i^eeking 
nevvi* sheets' publiiihed tiy the 
"News Tycoons." 

Sexist games iire often not 
noiked, they h<ive been 
incorporated into the very 
design of loday's software. 
Vour recefit review schedule 
shows the male dominance in 
j^.imes chariicters, scen.irios. 
Hind ^raphici.. Take lor instance 
Tl K'^f flames — Mag Max 
I M,i \e. CrcYieli tmale cat), 
f it.-ddOvef Heefe (two male 
characters), t/tt^* Computer 
People (only rnate characters) 
and gucn>s whith gender ihe 
^tar in lubaruhstiif 

Mnst i^arrtescan hiive neutral 
I fiij.Mttfj's, espetidi^ when 
ihey are robots and aliens. Is 
The sex of the character a I ways 
nett*ssary^ Do ^lOttware t'irmy 
ihink that women only es^i'St in 
ihe horrw and only venture ou-t 
to do ihe shopping? 

If they don't where are the 
52 per cent of female 
characters which would make 
games representaiwe of the 
pofjufaiion. 

Mi!. said that women do play 
parts in computer garner, but 
ihese passive rdes mejret>' 
reinforce exislinig sexist 
attitudes, an example being 
Donkey Kona whtch portrays 
the woman carted oft' by the 



gorilla and having to be saved 
by Mario. The Bug rightfulty 
^HJ this only to be heavily 
ri>dicijled by S.U It's comments 
JLtst showed how pathetically 
sexist sorm? writers to Itje, 

The popular computer press 
had a chance ^ little while back 
10 break the sexist mould when 
Teresa Maughan became 
editor of VS. Instead ol 
counlering the readers and 
some writers sexist drivel, she 
merely laughed it off and 
continue* to do so, the 
magazine still also takes sexist 
and racist adverts. 

r)welling upon adverts, we 
can see a further tentacle of 
compuitT sexism the senist 
advert. The most blatant 
modem example is BsthAti;tti 
by Palace which went one step 
further from drawings of 
scantilv<lad women and 
actual] y ishovvefi a phcittJ of 
Maria Whittaker with a lack of 
clothing. Palace has shot to the 
Number one sioi, this means 
that they are sinking lower than 
low to sell their products. 

A conclusion for all the 
companies out there t<iri i>e 
that by ignoring and exploiting 
52 per cent of the population, 
they are obviou'-lv Inking out 
onS2pet<<i rofiiihai 

they coukt nuiM- \ mare 
normal conclusion is thai 
sexism in computer games 
iKnores and often degrade* 
women, 

faror Lewi^ and Jeffrey Davy 
The Buf^ 

9ldi4or's repfly: We've all had 
a ptHider aboul racism and 
computers, chaps, hut we 
can't think of any "horrific" 
examples. Write in and tell us. 
We know quite a few girk re<id 
C+ VC so why don'l you *ko 
write in with your views on 
sexism and ccmiputer games. 



• t wrote 10 your magai^ine 
once before, but though mv 



name was not printed, my 
letter was! So, 1 Mt I had to 
write again to get the fame I 
deserve and to sort out a few 
thir^t^. 

ftrst, though. I don't want to 
talk to any Conan the librarian 
or some idiot in Ihe margin but 
to someone of the stature like 
Lieut, Laww, one cod dude. 

Right, on with the krtlef — I 
am sick and tired about people 
complaining about 
advertisements for gan>es 
unreieased yet. The reason is 
Ihat the Advert is given to 
C+ VC by the company weil in 
advar^ce for a future issue and, 
in between the time the 
company send* its advens out 
and the time ihey actually 
appH?ar in the magazine, 
something can so wrong in 
programming the game — %o 
there is an advert but not 
game. 

Tony T. appears to be in the 
middle of things at the 
morrieni, 1 1 is my hefief thai he 
is actually nearly always right 
but goes way over the top and 
appears wrong. 

However, he does have an 
expert knowledge of the 
computing induslry and knows 
what he is lakingabout. 

I don't like this music review 
feature. Normally I enjoy the 
special features you do but 
music has too many different 
lastes. However it is good to 
see that your still coming up 
with innovative ideas to make 
the mag better. Well done. 

Vou have successfully 
managed to cover a very wide 
range of computers. So, it is 
very An rwying to re*d letters 
irom Oric and Enterprise 
ownerii having a go at C-f VC 
for not doing reviews. It is 
obviously not C + VC's fault, 
thev just do not gel the games 
from the manufacturers. I think 
there should be special features 
on things like >iarting your own 
magazine or advice on 



programming just one-offs. 

I think that about wraps it up 
for now, I shake hands with all 
the male members of the team, 
and love and ki sses 10 the 
ladees, and robots — may your 
joints never rusl. V/ell doneon 
a superb mag. From your most 
loyal reader.

problems we face. It's hell, I 
lell you being me. The 
responsibility, the pain, the 
worry. 

• I would just I ike to 
congratulate you on vour 
excellent miaga/tnc, especially 
your Play by Mail paiges written 
and conducted so well by 
Wayne. 

i have been reading your 
maga/ine sir>re April '83 
without I might add missing 
any copies and I feel that the 
content has improved year by 
year. I starttHl buying C+VG 
because it was unmatched in 
Adventure gaming news and 
features handled by a certain 
Mr Campbell— just as his 
column was al towed to 
expand, I ^1 that Wayne's 
column should be expanded 
also. 

It is good to see riew ideas 
being used and tried out, ar^ I 
think this column was your beif 
bet yet. It would be nice lo see 
the reaction of an anicle about 
fanzines, but this may be 
SI raving to far.

ipr an Atari XI extra. Before I

suggestion a to why Tony T is

someone let Big Red out of {he

What wjs the relevance of

• This lener is about J gAtnv I 
M bought, written by Tony T, 
yuur Hot Gossip rnan, He's 
ikjy^t^ilkinjj iiboul the be«t 
icfffware^^nd all the^ things. 

Well, when I wvnt lo a shop 
I t?w day& ago, I saw it game 
tilled Frenneiis. 



at fr^nrt^iis again and what did 
I se^-f Written by Tony T. I 
didn't have lo k>ok any further! 
Tony, the guy who aWays talks 
about the latest Goorf software. 
So, I bought it. I came home 
and tfw first thing I wanted to 
rio was play the gjme. 
WellJ wish I hadn't 
bothered! ! This ganw h the 
most stupid, disgusting game 
ever. I'm really angry ^iboul ihiit 
one, Tony. This is what tS 
called a Rip-Off M Here are my 
points. 

• Graphics 1 
9 Sound 

• Valut-O 

• PbyahtlityO 

• Tot^ll 

I hope no one else has boug)ii 
this stupid garrw. Tony's 
always talking about the best 
soft wart- and ht? public he$ thii^ 
load of '(ti>''(a'. Even my little 
iJiAet wha'4 just two years old 
coutd write* this program.

• EdHor't reply: Tony T sends 
hH regank and Ihankf you for 
your wetl thougfil out and 
balanced comments. 

• i am wnting to reply about a 
certain A Q from Norfolk who 
My Mei and Kim are rubbish. 
They src the biz z and heavy 
metal is very cut dated, and 
why was the Beanie Boys' LP 
irit your heavy metal section, 
Ihey outclass anything in heavy 
metal. Why not ditch the MM. 
section and brinij in a hip hop 
one, because this ii the music 
ofthemomeni. 

Oh yes, a qi>es1ton . What's 
ihe best, an Amiga or an ST, is 
it an Amiga for it'^ graphics and 
sound or arv ST for it <. vj&lly 
superior game's collection^ I 
want to know because I might 
buy one — for games only.

Letceitet 

• Editor's reply: On the 
contrary HM is very im at Ihe 
moment, l>ot we take yiwir 
point and hope to etpand the 
type of music covered. 
Rumours have reached us 
from a very unreliable source 
which lalk of Amiga prke cut* 
M>on. SUylun<d■ 
# Firstly, 1 d likt* to say that I 
welcome any album revic*w in 
your magazine of any type. ] 
would prefer other music to be 
reviewed , I own an Atari ST 
and have 4one so for a year 
now. Therefore, after reading 
the Atari ST special, I decided 
that I'd better write in and say a 



big thank you for all your 
suppnri of this fabulous new 
computer. 

Yesterday, I purchased 
Caundet for my ST after 
reading the review in your 
magazine. I must say that it 
must be the be«t game out 
because of the fantastic 
graphics and gameplay. There 
is a bug in it though, If one 
character dies — m a two 
player ga me ^ and tfw INSERT 
key is pressed immediately — 
two resurrected characters will 
appear I! 

Try it and see, 

In your review, you 
mentioned that a four player 
Gauntlet will be out, WitI it be 
an add -on, or will it cost 
another 125. 
Cavm Unt 
Kent 

PS. I've finishicd UtUm^ 3 on 
my Atari 84)0. Pleaw wrrle lo 
me if you have any trouble 

A Editor's repty; Thank« for 
the Cauntfet tip, Gavin, watch 
out for Gduntfet fl. 

• Wayne s outdated- OK, if 
you want a "music" section in 
your mag please remember this 
is the m^ not the 70s. I think it 
is ridiculous to review only 
hard rock, heavy metal, ^peed 
meta! and nffver metals! 

I completely agree with 
Stuart Gorland. If you want lo 
review bard music, how about 
punk. t>ont say that there is no 
more punk, cause if punk is 
dead, then hard rock lies 1 3 
billion years away, just look at 
The Conflict, The Exptoited, 
CBH and many others — or 
won't you dare to review it 
because there's lots of *C« * and 
!|*initf 

if you want something new 
come over lo Belgium, it's the 
world's centre for New Wave. 
If you're too lazy to come over 
iust open your eyes up — 
there' pe bads of good, 
unknown groups in England 
like Alien Sex Fienct, Sislcf^ of 
Mercy. The Dead Kennedy's 
etc. I think you should review 
records of unknown, new 
bands bringing different music 
so that more people know that 
it e^fists and buy it. Cot it, 
Wayne? 

I was a bit disappointed with 
three of your issues earlier on 
this year — narridy March, 
April and May, Tfiey wefe so 
weak. But. lam ^lad to report 
that you have gol it together 
again. 



I l(A,H! [i',i' Miven for Game 
Over — could you do that into 
a gigantic postef f I would also 
love a poster of Hewson's 
Zynaps. Regards to lerry Paris 
— some real neat artwork! 
Wim de Gen( 
Seigium 

• Editor'f <«pfyr Alien Sen 
Fiend unknown? Where have 
you been Wim? Oh, Belgtum. 
There you go then! World's 
centre for New Wave, ehf 
What about Berlin then? I 
have seen a good gruup from 
Belgium — M. A.M. 1 think they 
were called, Bui wc take your 
point — wati h this space fur a 
more comprehensive music 
»clion. 

• In tasi month's Mailbag. I 
mad a Mr G Evans letter 
concerning tmagine's Came 
Over advert . If the boy is so 
concerned about the advert 
why doein'l he |ust turn the 
pa^ over, I am sure people 
like me prefer these sort of 
adverts ^- it catches my 
attention. So Gareth if you 
don't like it, bu/zoff. 

I'd be very graietui if you 
could idl me more about the 
wonderful Sega system. How 
long will it take to get to the 
shops, will you be doing 
regular reviews etc? 

Another comment to Mr 
Taylor if he is still reading 
C+VG, C+VG is very fair 
when it comes lo competition 
winners whatever race, creed 
or colour, 

I know because I am brown 
skinned and Moslem and I 
have won a competition in 
every four times I have entered 
■" that's a ratio of one out of 
every 4 dumbos. So, Mr Taylor 
^ bury your f>ead under a 
rock, 

Mease feave Mr Tony T 
alone. So what if he's dn alien. 
And to end, please please can I 
go out with Melissa f I am 
handsonve, intelligent, loving, 
caring, and sexy t! 
Romeo Mo 
Lomktn 

• Editor's reply: The Came 
Over ad has certainly stirred 
upa K<irne1's nesi. It's not fair 
lo tell someone to ignore a 
pageofC + VGiflhcy don '1 
like it. There should be no 
forbidd<^-n areas of the 
maga^irte. And no part should 
be offensive to our readers. 

Snjrrv, Rome^j, but .Melissa is 
booked up for the nekl few 
months.

VG's Hot Gossip«r 
Tony Takoushi has the biggest •yM, noM 

and mighry mouth in computMr games. He 
sees all heors oil and he then shouts 
about H eoch month exclusively in 
your favourite computer mag. 
So read on for the man 

who shoots from the lip 
at the good, the bod 
andtheuaiy in 
the sortware 
world. 



Jint recently there has been 
ion mcr»os« in the number 
of ods which leatuce 
vdrioua parti of womert'i 
bodies. 

There is o time oncf placa for 
everything. I pick up computer 
mogazinei to read about 
computers ond gomes and 
NOT to hove hu^e breostj 
thmst af met What is even 
stronger h lust WHY this has 
been happenins . . . 

There was a time, o few 
/ears ago, when the now 
defund mog, Wome 
Coa^xiHng Woeidy, siort«i to 
diipwy modeU on itji cover 
holdfng computer penpherah. 
TKa did leod to protests and 
the tdeo wcs dropped. 

Mork Cote of 5yst«m 
Three probably has Ihe 
dubious honovr of the worst 
ieituol exploitotion with h!$ 
exploits at the PCW Show of 




1935, he wos due to release o be described oi "very 

gome colled Twn^r— A4o^er phyiic<tr to donee on ha 

ofHariotSt ond hired o donee stand. The giHUwere bor^rved 

triKjpe of girfs that could or^ly eventually as it wta all o little 



too suggestive . . . 

Recently lhi« sort of 
explortaiion has ir^creosed with 
Ihe ods getting evert moie 
daring; the 04ie for Oome 
Over reoily ^ toko it to the 
extreme. Ocean was not the 
only one, MirrorSOft with its 
Defender of th^ Crown ond 
Pptace with its promo of 
Bathanan with a roufichy 
cover feotvrin^ Morio 
Whittaker oUo got in on Ihe 
ocf. 

Of course it does get tfie 
game covefOge for better or 
worse, all softwore companies 
ore allowed orttsHc license to 
plug their gomes, it reoily if juft 
mutter of degree. 

inoursocielyieicis 
geruirglly acknowledged OS e 
selling point, but being horteft, 
lo my mind crude sexual 
artwork hos NO PLACE in 
co4T)puter gomes. 



Three dimenstortali gomei 
are irv Ifvis month! After 
hovifvg experienced the 
lofest Novagen offerings 
— see this issue — I new 
hove to try ond put arK>ttver 
3'D gome irvto penpecHve. 

If I edited ST Wars or^d it 
comes from □ US compony 
called Mites Computing 
Inc. 

W% based on three 
scervoHos frofn the Siar Won 
fijrrtlrAogy, 

The gofne boosts nine 
different scene*, Asteroid 
Field, Spoce As^ouh, Wove 
Attack, Surfoce Mission, Enter 
Trench, Enter Tunnels, 
Obstocle fiocim, Power 
GenefQtor ond Exit Starttose. 

"Enough of lhe»e bJosted 
descriptions — whot is the 
gome like?" i heor you cry. 



Weli it ploys well Uit the 
onimotion gets reol slow reel 
fast OS the action hots up. 

There are loads of different 
scenes to try ond some of 
Ifwm wori( well with 
nsctsonably fost graphics, 
sour>d is boring in the gome 
j^ rather nice in the trtte 
sequence at five start of Ihe 
game). 

I will give ymj a smattering 
of some of the better scen^ 
in the gome, you storf by 
trying to get your man Ip \\ti 
Bghter through o couple of 
corridors ond through o 
banger. 

Control is via the mouse 
(which worits well) ond yo<j 
air\ shift from ground view to 
o top down view qu^ easily. 
When seated tn your fighter 
there iso quidc launch 



seqi>ence. You now find 
yourself in the Asteroid Field 
zopping osteroids and tte^ 
fighlen coming in from oil 
sides. 

To get to the Spoce Assault 
you hove to fly through o 
moving slot in the side of a 
box. this gives you energy 
and pressing H wiH 
hyperspoce you to the neid 
scene. 

The next tosty rtefn is the 
S^oce Mission, here you 
hove to btow away the 
conird lowers and avokl 
miisilei JAinched <A you from 
the ground boses. When yov 
zap the towers they explode 
true to life with bits oil over 
the pfoce. lovely, bvely, 
bvelyf 

The Trench Tunnel 
sequence is reoi cbse to the 



originol Star Wan coin-op, 
the obstocl«s ore nicely 
cotoured — all m wire frome 

— ond you con get a tittle 
dizzy if you lose control or>d 
start to spin. 

The lost couple of scenes 
ore fun, the obstocie room its 
exocHy tbot and you hove to 
steer around obstcKf es — a 
really stror^g 3D effect here 

— and then blow up the 
power gerterotof. rt you 
monoge to do this you leove 
through the trer»cK ogoin ond 
fly offinto spoce to see the 
planet explode. 

The variety of scenes 
mokes this gome entertoining, 
ond ohhoi^h it is weok in 
port! it do©$ generolly sotisfy. 
Meed if you ore a fon of the 
arcade Star War$ gomes 
then this is for you.
